My husband (who's on the same team at work) and I have shared responsibility for our role and we split our hours.
What did you ask for? : I wanted both my husband and I to spend more time with our kids.
What did you receive?: My husband (who’s on the same team at work) and I have shared responsibility for our role. We split our hours. He works on certain days on certain components of our projects and I work on others. It's the perfect synergy.
How did you feel? Did you believe it was already there? Did you allow it to show up?: I read about companies putting this into place years ago and the impact it had on the company and culture. I wasn't sure if my company had done something similar but I knew that there were ways that we could save the company money while providing more results. It seemed like a win for all of us so I brought the idea to my manager. She had some concerns which I addressed. She saw how valuable we could be together. I believed it was possible, enrolled her in my vision and we brought the idea to HR who signed off on it the next month. It's awesome.
